private (full-day) explorer tour
This private full-day tour, for groups of 1-4 people, picks you up from Geelong CBD and takes you beyond the city of Geelong to explore the Surfcoast & Great Ocean Road.
This full day tour takes you along the iconic Great Ocean Road and through the forests of the Otway National Park via the popular surf & fishing towns, Torquay, Lorne & Apollo Bay.
From Torquay to Apollo Bay is a two-hour drive along rugged clifftops and overlooking the great Southern Ocean. You’ll have a quick stop in Lorne, before continuing onto Apollo Bay where you’ll have the opportunity to have lunch* and check out the sights of this quaint little town.
You will then head inland, and after a short 30-min drive, you’ll arrive at Maits Rest Rainforest Walk. A short (approx. 30-minutes) self-guided loop along the wooden boardwalk taking you through a beautiful rainforest of giant fern trees.
The tour wouldn’t be complete without spending some time with some of Australia’s most treasured animals. Australian Fauna Park is a 40-acre reserve where you can get up close with many of their animals. There is also a café and souvenir shop selling home-made snacks and meals for the hungry.
After an amazing day and plenty of Selfie opportunities, you will head back to Geelong where you’ll be dropped off at around 5 pm.
*We recommend The Great Ocean Road Brewhouse as a great stop for lunch, with choices of locally grown meats, cheeses, seafood, fruit, wines & beer. Please note: Food & Beverages are not included in the tour price and are at your own cost.
